magpie monday and advent calendar

I was mooching around the shop the other week and saw this in one of my favourite charity shops ...

I know the film for it can be expensive, but for occasional fun I thought it was a bargain at £4.99

My boss at work was clearing out a load of buttons that working in a clothes shop we seem to collect ... she was just going to bin them, but I smiled sweetly and came home with them. Now some are pretty boring and probably wont keep, but there are some pretty flower ones and ones that are quite unusual ... not sure what I am going to do with them yet, but my button jar always welcomes new friends :)

Please pop over to MissieLizzie's blog to see more great bargains and links to other MagpieMonday's.
